Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Eric Bogosian stars in writer-director Oliver Stone’s (Salvador) 1988 adaptation of his fiery theatrical drama, Talk Radio. Bogosian portrays venomous radio talk show host Barry Champlain, whose reckless, relentless stream of abuse and sarcasm both titillates and infuriates. Parading his own “honesty,” Bogosian’s shock jock grows increasingly bitter, his outrageous cynicism both an emblem of his self-loathing and a temptation to his more disturbed listeners.

Co-stars include Alec Baldwin (Rock of Ages), Ellen Greene (Next Stop, Greenwich Village) and Michael Wincott (The Crow).

Special features on Twilight Time’s Blu-ray release include an isolated music track, the featurette Filming Rage: Oliver Stone on Talk Radio, and an original theatrical trailer.
